Scoop! 'Electric seat adjust' coming to Kushaq, Slavia, Taigun & Virtus

The Skoda Kushaq is likely to get a new Lava Blue exterior colour option as well.

2023 will mark 2-years since the launch of MQB A0 IN-based cars in India. We’ve learned that Skoda and Volkswagen have a few upgrades planned for their respective products next year.

The VW Group’s heavily-localized MQB platform made its debut in the Skoda Kushaq. It is said that the SUV will be offered in a new Lava Blue exterior colour next year.

While that may not sound like much of an upgrade, the Kushaq and Slavia, along with VW’s Taigun and Virtus, are expected to get electric seat adjustment and footwell illumination. 

Besides sharing the same platform, Skoda and Volkswagen offer the same set of engines and transmission options in their entry-level SUV and mid-size sedan range. These include a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder TSI that makes 113 BHP and 178 Nm and a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder TSI that puts out 148 BHP and 250 Nm. While a 6-speed manual transmission comes standard, the 1.0L engine gets a 6-speed automatic option. The 1.5L motor is available with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
